A number one draft pick in the NBA already has the pressure of Atlas on his back. But things have gotten a lot stickier for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Andrew Wiggins, who was put on the spot during an interview on ESPN’s SportsCenter amid trade rumors.
The 19-year-old is a stud that any team would love to have on their roster, but with NBA All-Star forward Kevin Love on the trading block in Minnesota, there’s a chance that the young player won’t be a Cavalier for long. Sportscaster Bram Weinstein made that the focal point of his talk with Wiggins, who clearly wasn’t ready for that line of questioning. Things soon took an awkward turn.
After asking questions like whether Wiggins has spoken with LeBron James — he hasn’t — Weinstein inquired, “What do you want to happen now?
“I just want to play for a team that wants me,” Wiggins quickly said. “So, whichever team wants me, I’ll play for.” Weinstein followed up by asking,”Do you think Cleveland wants you?,” to which the hoop star replied afer a long pause, “Yeah, I hope so.”
